Communist Party of Turkey (TKP) organized an election rally in Adıyaman's Kömür on Tuesday with the participation of the district's mayoral candidate and the general secretary of TKP, Kemal Okuyan.
Speaking at the rally, Kemal Okuyan stated "TKP will be in Kömür with all its strengths and with its friends who are doctors, academics, scientists. We will solve the problems of this district together with the people of Kömür."
"It is obvious that one of the basic problems in Kömür is water. Water pollution caused by marble quarries in the region seriously damages the people of the district. We will end this together," Okuyan added.
TKP's mayoral candidate Aziz Çelik also noted that they would recreate Kömür with better production, education and health opportunities. "While the children of the rich receive a good education in private schools, our children are educated in 70-year-old schools. Why should our children not receive a good education?" he said.
